You can get one at any auto parts store,take it with you and they can match a socket to it or have them look up the sensor and they can get the right socket for it.

Where is oil sending unit located on a 2002 honda odyssee 3.5 vtech located


I have done this on a 2003 Odyssey EX. The oil pressure switch is located on the oil pump assembly, which is behind the passenger side front wheel. There are 2 sensors - the oil pressure switch is the furthest one and least accessable. You need to pull off the connector, which is very tight. I used a pair of pliars with a cloth to twist it off. Be carefull not to damage the connector. There are 2 different switches available for the 2003, each with different tread sizes. I used a regular wrench to remove/install the switch, and it stopped the leak that prompted the repair. Another TIP: watch how long your wrench is, because you can catch the power steering pressure switch wiring harness and break the thin wires, leading to a much more expensive repair.... Next time I will disconnect the power steering pressure switch first and pay more attention. Or buy a shorter wrench.... Good luck!After you remove take to Auto part store and match up with a new one.Adeep well socket may also work.here's another site I found on removing.
  1. Locate the oil pressure sending unit on the engine.
  2. Note the anti-theft code and radio presets for the radio.
  3. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  4. Disconnect the sending unit electrical harness.
  5. Using a pressure switch socket, deep-well socket or wrench, loosen and remove the sending unit from the engine.
To install:
  1. Apply a liquid thread sealant to the sending unit and install the sending unit in the engine and tighten securely.
  2. Attach the electrical connector to the sending unit.
  3. Check the engine oil level and top off as necessary.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.
  5. Enter the anti-theft code and radio presets for the radio.
  6. Start the engine, allow it to reach operating temperature and check for leaks.
  7. Check for proper sending unit operation.

How do I change my oil pressure unit


If it is like my 4.6 northstar in 99 deville, it's not easy. From under car look up beside oil filter and you can see to unit. Remove filter for better access, but still not easy.

How to replace oil pan


5.2 liter V8 engine?

Remove the four front skid-plate bolts holding the front skid plate, using a ratchet and socket. Remove the skid plate.

Pull the plastic splash shield away from the vehicle, loosening the retaining clips. Remove the splash shield.


  • Place an oil drain container under the oil pan. Loosen the drain fitting with a wrench until oil drains from the pan. When oil is done draining, tighten the drain fitting.

  • Disconnect the electrical connections running to the starter motor. Remove the starter motor mounting bolts with a ratchet and socket, then remove the starter motor.
  • Remove the oxygen sensor socket from the exhaust pipe, using a wrench.
  • Remove the exhaust manifold bolts where the exhaust meets the manifold on both sides, using a ratchet and socket
  • Place an jack under the transmission to support it. Remove the pressure on the transmission crossmember.

  • Remove the bolts that hold the transmission crossmember in place, using a ratchet and socket. Then remove the crossmember. Place a jack stand under the transmission to keep the transmission from falling off the jack if hit. Once removed, the exhaust will hang down, allowing enough room to remove the oil pan.
  • Disconnect the oil level sensor and the nut retaining the transmission cooling lines, using a wrench.
  • Remove the oil pan bolts with a ratchet and socket, then remove the oil pan and gasket.
  • Clean the mounting surfaces of the new oil pan and engine block. Make sure what ever you use to clean the surfaces dosn't gouge the metal.
  • Place a coat of RTV (gasket) sealer on the engine block where the pan will meet the rear main cap.
  • Place the new gasket on the pan and push the new oil pan into place. Finger tighten the oil pan mounting bolts to hold it in place. Tighten the bolts with a torque wrench to 18 ft-lbs. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE BOLTS! Doing so will cause the gasket to deform and create leaks!

  • Connect the oil level sensor and the nut retaining the transmission cooling lines, using a wrench.
  • Place the exhaust back into position and replace the transmission crossmember bolts and crossmember with a ratchet and socket.
  • Remove the jack supporting the transmission.
  • Connect the exhaust back to both sides of the manifold, tightening the bolts with a torque wrench to 20 ft-lbs.
  • Attach the oxygen sensor socket to the exhaust pipe with a wrench.

  • Replace the starter motor by installing the starter motor mounting bolts with a ratchet and socket. Connect the electrical connections to the starter motor that were disconnected during removal.
  • Push the retaining clips on the plastic splash shield into the appropriate retaining clip holes.
  • Replace the front skid plate by replacing the four front skid plate bolts with a ratchet and socket.
  • Fill the engine with 5 quarts of oil. Make sure to check the level on the dipstick to find the exact level when filling.

    Oil pressure gauge reads 80 lbs display at 130


    If they haven't moved it it should be behind the back of the intake manifold. Only other place I'd look is near the oil filter. You can change it. There is a special socket called an oil pressure sending unit socket, They come in a couple of different sizes. If unit is the "bell" type, you can use a wrench on it.

    Cant get to o2 sensor


    Might have to lower exhaust pipe, depending on which O2 sensor you are replacing, upstream or downstream. There are sensor sockets available or a metric wrench. Also available is a crow foot wrench that can be used with a ratchet.
